i’m co-hosting the circle with the lovely kiki over at | in its time | this month.
to say i’m thrilled would be an understatement; because you see, kiki is pretty incredible .
she is beyond talented (photography, graphic design, compassionate heart) and has a true desire to dig into the lives of others. to me – the circle does that. it’s an opportunity to get to know each other on different levels and have fun while doing it.
this month we tossed around the idea of a coffee date because lets be honest who doesn’t love sitting down with a warm cup of joe and a close friend chatting about what makes your heart happy.
welcome to our coffee date, and please join in.
at the wooden bar in the library of bake house. the chill is radiating through the windows a little bit – i pull my scarf a little higher.
i’m nursing a delicious chai tea latte. i’m a little bit of a chai tea snob and if a coffee shop offers chai tea on their menu, i’ll judge them on how it tastes – yeah i’m a horrible person. i’m also eating a delicious chocolate crackle cookie – trust me, you haven’t tasted a chocolate cookie until you’ve had one of these.
whew. can i just say how thankful i am that it is finally wednesday? have you ever noticed how we long for friday to come and yet we whine and are blind sighted when we realize how quickly the year is going? i mean it is already the middle of january! (how did that happen!?!) i’ve also got to be honest and say that my 2013 goal list hasn’t been FULLY pushed into gear. & i’m ok with that, i think we get caught up in this “i have this list and all of this as to change starting january 1!!” personally i think we set ourselves up for failure with that mentality – change, real change, takes time and a constant effort.
also…i’m so glad you’re here – cheesy right? 😉 this blogging community, these friendships i’ve built and am developing – i’m in awe of. i never thought that hitting the word “publish” would connect me to so many incredible, unique, selfless individuals. <3 love y’all.
so many options, i mean really, i have to narrow it down?! i’m going to pick a few (hey i helped come up with the question, i can break the rules!) bryce avary of the rocket summer. my parents – which may sound weird, but since they passed when i was so young there are many questions that i have now that i’m an adult and actually WANT them as my friends.
good art, clean lines, white walls, gold accents, blank canvases – there is inspiration in everything.
i really believe that 2014 is going to be a year where i tap into some much needed art therapy. i’ve had someone recently reach out wanting to commission me for a painting (what?! seriously?!) and a few other situations where i’ve been humbled to have people regard what i “do” (pictures, painting, drawing, decorating, writing) as art. i’ve always been fortunate enough to be inspired easily.
let’s see – after our coffee i should probably get back to work, i’m sure after all this time i’m late (whoops!). When the work day winds down i’ll be heading to my garage for a good work out session, then cleaning the house, do a load of laundry, read some harry potter, and call it a day.
we would love for you to join us this month and answer the questions in your own post and link up back here so we can all have one big coffee date!
